As someone with an insatiable curiosity about the world and everything in it, I have always wanted to set up an area to teach my children at home. In another life, I might be a home schooler, but in this life I am settling for part-time enrichment, following cues as the kids show interest in things. I actually think most parents do this. But I have a blog and I like to share.
I set out this new year to get a learning area prepared for the kids. I have a small collection of workbooks, a good stack of printable activities, a full arsenal of art supplies, and I used their Christmas money to pick up some hands-on learning toys and games. As I began assembling our learning stuff (for real, not just in my mind), it was hard not to get carried away. My Pinterest board can attest to that.
I recently posted on a learning activity that the kids just loved – just a small jar of painted stars. The possibilities have been endless – just yesterday they were cookies and pan-a-cakes.
I wanted to share some of other things that are keeping them busy.
